I Love Being a Teacher because...

This essay writing contest is exclusive for teachers, both from public and private schools, who are currently teaching in the Philippines. Also you should be 22-65 years old. So definitely I am not qualified even if I make a career shift into teaching since I am just 21... hehe.

Seriously, this is a great contest and you should encourage all the teachers you know because they definitely have a lot of stories to tell. This is also a tribute of sort to these heroes that are often portrayed as "titser na nagbebenta ng longgonisa" or "si mam na namamalo"

We have three teachers in the family, all are my in-laws, and I will definitely ask them to consider this contest.

The mechanics: Entries must be written in English (12 pts Time Roman font) and not more than 1000 words. A participant can send as many entries as they want until October 5, 2010 (5:00 pm only). Send your entries via email to with the subject: I Love Being a Teacher because...

This contest is sponsored by the Manila Bulletin, HP and Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines. Winners will be contacted via email and will be awarded with special prizes.

Although the prizes are not indicated, Manila Bulletin is such a generous company when it comes to giving of prizes. The last essay writing contest they had, they gave away three (3) Samsung laptops for three months.
